Since the announcement was made on The Pride of West Virginia's official Facebook page Monday, more than 800 Facebook users have shared the message.
Some have even used the page to share with others the responses they've received from University of Maryland officials over the ordeal.
Drury is also perplexed by Maryland's claims that it's school policy. The WVU band performed at M&T Bank Stadium as recently as 2005, according to Drury.
As a former WVU student and band member himself, Drury remembers performing at Maryland more than once.
"As a matter of fact, we did a combined performance with the Maryland band a few times. It's definitely not a longstanding tradition," he said. "If this is the way they do it, it's not been that way forever."
While Drury called the announcement a great disappointment, there's a silver lining. The public's help over the past week has been "very touching," and many of the band members have opted to attend the Maryland game, despite everything, to play in the stands.
"We're always appreciative when the fans show their support," Drury said. "Probably one of the things most disappointing about this is that our kids really enjoy performing for their fans and getting on the field to show what they can do. The fact that we have a lot of fans that are going be there and that a lot of our kids come from Maryland or surrounding areas, it means the field is a lot closer for some families than WVU and they won't get to see them perform."
Kickoff for Saturday's game at the Baltimore Ravens stadium is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
